    This is a very nice and chic dress – great job!! I’ve made the dress of this pattern, and I like it a lot :-)

      Thank you zsyzu. I loved the print and fabric for this pattern, especially because it was to be a dress instead of a top. It worked out really well, I think.

      Thank you rita! The photo doesn’t do them justice…it really does have a fantastic color scheme. Wonderful for people trying to come out of their “black hole”.

      Thanks Mary :) She was thrilled – I had made this as a top for myself in a great fabric I’d been waiting for the right project to use – she practically ripped it off my body to try it on! With a few alterations – she’s 5’, I’m 5"8 and searching for a great fabric for her skin tone that wasn’t “black” i think she’s worn it at least 5 times since I delivered it to her about 2 weeks ago. I agree about the pattern – it’s fun, and I’ve looked at several of the recent posts. This pattern was made for fabulous geometric/abstract prints. Everyone has done a fantastic version.

      i just realized in my profile picture Im wearing the long sleeved top of this pattern, lol – this pattern was wonderful. Someday i’ll get around to posting photos of all my projects. I have terrible lighting conditions to work with and no one to assist me, so they all go into the “edit or kill” pile lol.

      I’m the same with photos, its either my mum who takes them or i use a self timer. Sometimes they’re ok but sometimes like my last post it looked like i had just one leg lol x
